Getting the Job Done 

"​I am a firm believer in working together for the good of Stratford regardless of political affiliation. The current Council enjoys a cooperative and respectful atmosphere in order to get the job done for the people of Stratford. Five generations of my family have lived in Stratford and today my grandson attends Bunnell High School. After serving in the U.S. Air Force for twenty years and traveling the world, I came back to Stratford, my hometown. When someone asks me where is the best place I have lived, I say Stratford.  It has been my pleasure and honor to serve the people of Stratford as the District 8 Councilman. Your vote will enable me to continue to help move Stratford forward. Please support me on November 5th. Thank you."
